Come to Chongqing's Ice and Snow World This Winter

By SHIHAN YANG5|Dec 29,2022

There are a number of ice and snow tourism resources in Fengdu County in Chongqing. Located between 1,400 and 2,000 meters above sea level, Nantian Lake has a core area of about 50 square kilometers. The ice and snow season lasts about 130 days a year, spanning from December to February, which accounts for about one-third of the year, thus lavishly endowing this land with ice and snow resources. More than 50cm of snow and temperatures below minus 10 degrees Celsius are common on 100 days of the year.

Fengdu County has enhanced its advantages in ice and snow sports in recent years and developed an ice and snow economy. During the Ice and Snow Tourism Season of Nantian Lake, an increasing number of people fall in love with ice and snow sports and participate in ice and snow tourism.

In addition to more than ten traditional snow entertainment projects such as snowmobile, snow boat, and snow tube, a 20,000-square-meter ice and snow theme park has taken shape under the support of Tencent Games. The popular online game "Game for Peace" in this park enables smooth interaction between the virtual and real worlds.

Tourists can participate in many ice and snow activities on the music square and in the camping base, such as the snow tug of war, the snow collision ball, and the snow roller. A visit to Tianhu Yaochi is characterized by the attraction "Viewing the Soft Rime and Taking in the Lake View," which creates an ambiance of ice and snow.

The Nantian Lake in winter will bring you different excitement.

How will Chongqing develop its ice and snow industry?

Chongqing Fengdu Nantian Lake National Tourist Resort has been selected as a national sports tourism demonstration base this year. The title will make Nantian Lake a national destination known as a "Holiday Resort & Sports Paradise."

Nantian Lake is home to the only alpine ski resort with advanced slides in Chongqing. It is designed according to the standards of the Olympic Winter Games. Slides for beginners, intermediates, and advanced users are available. The ski resort has a reception hall of 6,300 square meters, covering 450,000 square meters. It also has more than 3,000 sets of ski equipment, a training school with professional ski instructors, complete cableway systems, snow-making systems, snow groomers, and snow removal equipment. It features full facilities and a strong service capacity to host national professional skiing competitions.

Chongqing's ice and snow industry benefit from the Beijing Winter Olympics' drive to ice and snow sports. Now, Chongqing has ten standard ski resorts, nine ice skating rinks, and seven roller hockey rinks. The ice and snow industry is taking shape.

According to the China Ice and Snow Tourism Consumption Big Data Report (2022), Chongqing ranks among the top ten cities with the most ice and snow tourists in China. By the end of 2021, the number of people participating in ice and snow sports in Chongqing exceeded 4 million person-times.

Chongqing's ice and snow industry face problems and challenges such as a small number of venues, high operating costs, insufficient professionals, and insufficient industrial vitality. Compared with Chengdu, Guangdong, and other southern cities with relatively developed ice and snow industries, Chongqing's ice and snow industry is restricted by many factors. Therefore, intensified efforts are needed.

In the next step, Chongqing will devote itself to advancing the ice and snow economy, focusing on ice and snow venues, ice and snow events, ice and snow training, and ice and snow sports competitions. This way, Chongqing will further develop the ice and snow industry in breadth and depth and create a better environment for developing the ice and snow industry.
